20th Century Art

 

The Bridge
Fast Facts

The Bridge was composed of spirited, young, anti-war artists in Dresden, Germany between 1905 and 1913 who believed themselves to be a link between the past and future with the present, thus a bridge. They were united by communal life and their rebellion against “the tyranny of the new materialism inspired by the Industrial Revolution”. They strove for enlightenment through self-expression and psychological exploration; their work reflects the search.
